The Raiz Invest Ltd (ASX: RZI) share price fell today after the company released its monthly metrics for April.

At the time of writing, the Raiz share price has recovered slightly to be down 2% for the day, trading at $1.47. Here’s how Raiz performed in April and how the company’s share price has responded.

How did Raiz perform in April?

Earlier this morning, Raiz provided the market with an update on its performance for April 2021. The update provided an insight into the company’s Australia, Indonesian, and Malaysian operations for the month.

Raiz noted that funds under management (FUM) in Australia increased 6.2% for the month to $737.56 million. The company remains confident that $1 billion in FUM by the end of 2021 remains a realistic target.

In addition, Raiz reported that global active customers grew 2.4% for the month to a total of 429,827. The company’s management praised customer growth as a reflection of loyalty, despite an increase in monthly maintenance fees.

Raiz also highlighted a successful capital raise in April to accelerate growth and the acquisition of Superstate Pty Ltd.

More on the share price

Raiz is an Aussie fintech company that operates a mobile-focused, micro-investing platform in Australia, Indonesia, and Malaysia. The company’s platform enables users to micro-invest the remaining round-up of everyday purchases in exchange-traded funds (ETF). In addition, Raiz allows users to open a superannuation fund.

Raiz charges a flat monthly investment fee for each user which comprises more than 60% of the company’s revenue. As mentioned previously, Raiz recently increased its monthly maintenance fee from $2.50 to $3.50.

The company recently released its third-quarter update for the 3 months ended 31 March. Raiz reported total normalised revenue of $3.1 million for the quarter, up 39% compared to the prior corresponding period. 

Raiz also announced firm commitments to raise $10.2 million via an oversubscribed placement late last month. The capital raising followed the company’s proposed $9.5 million acquisition of fund manager Superstate. According to the company, the proposed acquisition of Superestate will allow Raiz to offer clients access to residential property as an asset class.

Since late April, the Raiz share price has tanked more than 11% following the capital raising.
